Because of train schedules and whatnot, Olaf and I spent a day in Kota. It has a city palace that is interesting if in a sad state of repair. The other thing that has been interesting to note throughout our travels in Rajasthan is how buddy buddy the rajahs all seemed to have been with the British. Pretty much throughout the rest of India one gets the sense of British colonialism and occupation as very much a bad thing with resistance everywhere. But in Rajasthan it seemingly helped to prop up princely power in a way.
